Panama Red is a Sativa strain that first gained popularity back in the 1960s and was widely loved up through the nineties. Providing a mellow cerebral high that is slightly on the euphoric and energetic side, the strain is a pretty classic Sativa. Still, Panama Red does have some relaxing bodily effects. A few users also feel much more creative after using the strain. This Sativa will leave most users eyes drier than their mouths but may also cause headaches, anxiety and paranoia.
The strain is ideal for daytime use to cope with stress and anxiety, or to alleviate the oppressing effects of depression. The slight body high of Panama Red may help make some mild aches and pains more manageable. They may also help fight eating disorders such as anorexia. It may also be good for relieving users of inflammation and nausea.
Panama Red grows to average height and can get pretty lanky at times. She’ll also stretch a bit during the initial few weeks of flowering. Most who grow this strain – although not many do anymore – are rewarded with a fairly decent yield of some flavorful, old-school cannabis.
Since you are very unlikely to find clones, seeds or even buds of Panama Red in a dispensary, you’re best bet if you do wish to get your hands on some is to get some seeds from the breeder, which are only available in non-feminized form.
This strain is a pure landrace Sativa strain named after the country it came from and seeds are now really only available from the original breeder Reefer man. The decline of the strain’s popularity is due to it’s long flowering time that ranges between 11 and 12 weeks and it’s moderate yield with a low THC count. Even so, for many the strain remains a favorite for its ease of growth both indoors and out.
